A man died after being struck by a piece of equipment Wednesday at an asphalt paving business in northwest suburban Lake Zurich.

Police responded at 1:43 p.m. to a call of a man who was struck by a piece of paving equipment at Chicagoland Paving Contractors, 225 Telser Rd., according to a statement from Lake Zurich police. No other injuries were reported.

The man was identified as 58-year-old Jack Eiler of Ingleside, according to Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper. He was pronounced dead the scene.
